A nice short set by Melvin and the JGB, opening for the Levon Helm Band. About an hour or so long, a couple of Dylan tunes, and a nice Sugaree, make for some great listening. Show featured Dave Hebert in the Jerry spot on vocals and guitar.
Recording was FOB and there is some crowd chatter at some points, but overall decent sound and represents the night well!

WTF boscomorgan?!? This is a great show!
boscomorgan asked "One question though how isit they call this band JGB when there is no JG?" The answer is why not. There is a Count Basie Orchestra with no Count, Glenn Miller Orchestra with no Glenn Miller, and they still play Bach and Beethoven and other music as well. So calling the project Melvin Seals and the JGB isn't as offensive as you giving the band and the show a two star review on just the name. Did you listen to the show? It's pretty damn good. Better than a lot of bands calling themselves by other Jerry Band derivatives. So I hope this review counter balances your crappy one:
The Sugaree is the highlight! Just listen to the crowd! Melvin lays it down and Hebert channels Jerry. This is a great combination. There is a Drum/Bass solo that shows the Jimmy and Pete are not to be taken for granted.
